Rockland County Shields
I was pleased to see so many in attendance at our January 2018 meeting held at Casa Mia.
The installation of the 2018–2019 Board went very well. I would like to thank Judge William Franks, a Shields member and Stony Point Town Justice, for administering the oath of office to the new Board of Officers. I also extend a very special “Thank You” to Tim Connolly, Sr, for administering the oath of office to me.
Mark Murphy will be a tough act to follow. He is dedicated to the Shields - and he is very organized. I thank him for all his help.
As I mentioned at the meeting, the people that make up the Shields’ Board do quite a bit of work. The events run by this organization are the results of that work. Don’t miss out. Check the “CALENDAR” in this newsletter for times and dates. And remember – there is room on EVERY committee.
Lastly, we continuously see alarming news reports about acts of violence against law enforcement officers. There were so many in this last week that I have lost count. And it’s not just happening in the big cities.
Active members - be vigilant, wear your vest, and go home after each tour.
We pray every day for the safe return of those who protect us.
REMEMBER TO THANK OUR VETERANS AND FIRST RESPONDERS
